We're excited to have Habitat For Humanity and the ReStore once again participating in the Vancouver Fall Home Show. Before you enjoy their display October 24-27 at the Vancouver Convention Centre-West, enjoy our brief interview below. Learn more about how they're helping our community and what you can do to support their efforts, then get a sneak peek at some of the pieces they'll be bringing. 

Habitat For Humanity

What do you think folks should know about your organization?

"Habitat for Humanity is a global organization that has provided safety and security through home ownership opportunities to millions around the world! We are currently building in the Vancouver area and 100% of monetary donations given to Habitat For Humanity Greater Vancouver goes toward the building efforts because of our amazing fundraising stores known as the ReStore."

Please describe your products and services.

"The ReStore is a furniture and building supply outlet that benefits families in the Vancouver area. We sell new and gently used products at outstanding prices. We currently have four locations in the Greater Vancouver area: Langley, North Vancouver and two in Burnaby. These ReStores are a hub to donate building materials, volunteer to help partner families, and provide a unique shopping experience like none-other! We also have a brand new online store Habitatgv.shop where you can reserve items online and pick them up when it's most convenient for you!"

What are your best home or garden tips for the season?

"Don’t forget about lighting! We can get excited about the colour of the paint on the wall and the new knobs we put on a dresser, but if the room is dark no one will be able to appreciate it for all its worth! Make sure when you are thinking about home décor or updating your garden that you put some serious thought into how you are going to illuminate the space."

What's your favourite part about participating in the Vancouver Fall Home Show?

"Our favourite part is meeting you! Our booth is manned with volunteers and staff from Habitat for Humanity and we look forward to sharing our heart and vision with you. We dream of helping provide home ownership for thousands upon thousands of working families in Vancouver that simply in need of a hand up. We get so excited when we meet like-minded people at the Home show that care about others and want to give back to their community!"

What's your biggest home or garden pet peeve?

"Waste. Hundreds of tonnes of perfectly usable furniture and building supplies are thrown out and added to the landfill every year. We are not just hurting our planet, but also hurting our wallets with the cost of dump fees. The ReStore provides a better alternative, everyday we receive donations of furniture and building materials and even send out trucks to pick up goods. It breaks our heart when things go to the landfill especially if they are in perfect condition! We offer an opportunity for those goods to be re-sold to build and decorate homes rather than to simply be thrown out!"

Is there anything else you think Vancouver Fall Home Show guests should know?

"We are very excited to announce that every visitor who stops by our booth will be able to grab a special discount coupon for 30% off their next purchase at a local ReStore! We want to appreciate all of you who are just as passionate about home and garden renovations as us with some extra savings! so make sure you come out to our booth and say hi!"
